I created this thread in order for all of us to use it as a platform that allows us to exhibit, promote, and share our work within the *Vigilant community.

Furthermore you may also post and discuss about other emerging and established artists, feel free to share their work, but don't forget to cite your sources.

Enjoy Image

Here are a couple of samples of my work...in no particular order or subject.

I work mostly digital in my early years, as an graphic artist (2000-2007), I use to do a lot of abstract drawing.
Suprematism, abstract art as well as stylized iconography.

I also painted a bit for a short period...anywho I have other official portfolio work like logo design, publication/layout, identity, stationary suite design as well as some web design.

The work I like to share the most however, is my "fun work" what I have shared above. :D

The Most Ambitious Cathedral In Human History Might
Finally Be Finished Thanks to Software


For three generations, some of the best architects and builders in the world have struggled to complete Antoni Gaudi's masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. After 130 years, the massive cathedral in Barcelona might finally be within a decade or two of completion thanks to computers.

La Sagrada Familia is the longest running architectural project in human history. This 60 Minutes segment is a nice overview of the colossally ambitious design.

Even though Gaudi died almost a century ago, his plans for the cathedral were so far ahead of their time that complex computer modeling usually reserved for aerospace design is required to sort out just how he intended to shoot those spires into the heavens. You gotta watch this.

Nice work, Lux!!!

I started to go into commercial art at the technical school I went to but it was too technical for me. Sometimes I wish I would have had the patience and self discipline back then to stay in that class!
